On a sidenote, it would be cool with the Nemesis of the Beast Faction was Beronath, either revived, or it's descendant.

Awesome read. Fancy new items too.

Will the Beasts faction consist only of new xpac beasts, or will we be able to increase infamy by killing the existing ones in Acts 1-4? If the latter...does that mean by ranking up we'll have even more Hero spawns than the often-three-at-a-time we already have?

The lore is interesting some connection between the Witch gods and the Arkovian gods, or did they only appeared because someone tried to enter the Eldritch Realm?

Like knowing what is coming up next for Grim Dawn? Check back on 05/29/2017 for our next development update!
Man wondering how those four faction will enter play. I'll go out and say

1- Automatic Allies (DC / Homestead kind of situation)
2- Choice situation (wishing for one like The Outcast that can either be your allies or a Nemesis)
3/4 - One or the other (Allies with 1 Nemesis with the other) the way Kymon/Order is working now

That would offer 4 more Faction Shop and still the option of 3 new Nemesis (+ the confirmed Beast Faction so 4 new Nemesis).

The current game "balance" in that term look like
Outcast can be either
Order and Kymon balance each other
DC / Rovers / Homestead / Legion
Balance on
Cronley / Undead / Aetherials / Chtonian

Cool addition to the lore, and nicely woven into early Misadventures about the Ugdenbog and the arkovian constellations.

Also very curious how this is going to add to the story of the three Witch Gods.

Though why does Solael snap their fingers rather than his fingers? What kind of abomination did he become!?

Finally I am quite curious about the five factions. One of them is the beasts as you gave away - which I assume functions the same as the Undead, Cronley's Gang etc. (e.g. the more you kill, the angrier they get at you, the bigger badasses spawn).

The other is this witch coven who warns to stay away from the Alter.

Would their like with Kymon's Chosen and Order of Death's Vigil again be mutually exclusive factions? E.g. the Coven of Ugdenbog if you want to protect the world from the three / eldritch realm / alter of Rattosh versus a faction that wants you to explore this further (e.g linked to the remnants of the hidden path?)

So many questions!

Do we get to see the three? Do we get to kill the three? (do we get to loot the three ?)
What happened to Rattosh?
Are the Luminairi a faction we can interact with?
Who is this Runesigned fellah?
Is it even one fellah, or are the Runesigned another faction ala elite Luminairi?
In the earlier Ugdenbog misadventure it hints Creed is sending us here to do something, what is it?
How many fingers does Solael have? Is he able to snap other people's fingers as well?

How much of a choice is this really? I felt it was a non-choice - either you ally with Creed/The Outcast OR you miss out on extra gear and quests, and the item augmentations are kinda a necessity. + Choosing the outcast doesn't influence your relation with the black legion that much.

Hopefully, one of the new factions balances that out and gives a counter to the Outcast. Like with Chosen/Vigil
